My good friend Keith let me try out his “Pogies” during these nasty storms we’ve been having in Northern Nevada. Pogies, sometimes called Moose Mitts or Bullwinkles, are weatherproof covers that go over your handlebars, enabling you to use a thinner glove in cold weather. As cold weather cyclists know, bulky winter gloves can make it difficult to brake and shift.
I’m currently working on a post for Commute by Bike that will go over the whole range of Pogie options available; however, there is one deal that I wanted pass along to Blue Collar Readers that is hard to pass up.
As part of my Pogie research, I consulted Tim Woody, an avid year-round cyclist in Anchorage, Alaska. He informed me of a killer deal on a set of Cabela’s ATV/Snowmachine Handlebar Mittens for just $14.99! Although not bicycle specific, they should work just fine for mountain bike handlebar widths.
The Cabela’s product page is HERE.

Stay tuned for the full Pogie review coming soon to Commute by Bike…
